Grand Haven, Michigan


ELPC works from our Grand Rapids office to protect clean water and advance clean energy in Michigan. We work with allies to protect the Great Lakes from the risks of Enbridge’s aging oil pipeline under the Straits of Mackinac. We protect drinking water by supporting strong state standards for industrial agriculture. We work to transition Michigan to a renewable energy economy with more solar energy. Our attorneys engage with the Public Service Commission to hold utilities accountable, so customers aren’t left holding the bag for bad energy investments. And we work with cities and states to advance ambitious climate solutions to reduce carbon pollution.

Michigan is the center of the Great Lakes ecosystem, surrounded by four of the five freshwater lakes. As a historic leader in vehicle manufacturing and transportation technology, Michigan can lead the transition to electric vehicles. ELPC knows the challenges and opportunities to shape a healthy economy here hand in hand with a healthy environment.
